PRE-CONSULTATION REQUIREMENTS FOR PLANNING APPLICATIONS

Changes were made to the Planning Act as part of Bill 51 which allows municipalities to require applicants to pre-consult with the municipality prior to submitting a planning application.  Municipalities may also require additional background reports in support of the application in order for the application to be considered complete.  The purpose of pre-consultation is to ensure that the applicant is aware of the required supporting information before an application is submitted in order to prevent delays in processing their application. 

Pre-consultation is required for official plan amendment applications, zoning by-law amendment applications, plan of subdivision applications, plan of condominium applications, consent applications and site plan applications.   For some applications no additional background information other than the information required under the Planning Act regulations is required for the application to be considered. For other applications additional background information is required for staff and relevant agencies to evaluate the application and for the municipality to properly consider the application and make a decision. 

In order to require pre-consultation and additional background reports, municipalities must have policies in their Official Plan which sets out the provisions for pre-consultation and the requirements for background studies.  The Town has policies in its Official Plan regarding pre-consultation.  To implement the Official Plan policies, the Town adopted By-law No. 08-75 which requires pre-consultation prior to the submission of planning applications. Applications will not be accepted by the Planning and Development Department unless the applicant has held a pre-consultation meeting with Staff and affected agencies, the applicant has submitted a completed pre-consultation meeting form and all required supporting information has been submitted with the application.  In the case of complex applications, more than one pre-consultation meeting may be required with the Town and affected agencies. 

In consultation with other Niagara area municipalities, the Town has prepared a Best Practices Guide for Pre-Consultation.  The Best Practices Guide for Pre-Consultation outlines the required application and supporting information to be submitted with a request for a pre-consultation meeting (See Appendix 1 and 2 of the Guide),  as well as the process to be followed by the Town.  The Town holds its pre-consultation meetings on the second and fourth Thursday afternoons each month.
